Here Are The Best Sunscreens For Men

Wearing sunscreen isn't just for the great outdoors. The best sunscreen for men is the one you'll be happy to wear every day.

What if we told you that UV rays can penetrate your car or office windows and cause just as much damage as being at the beach? Well, it’s true. Cape Town dermatologist Dr Dilshaad Asmal recommends wearing sunscreen every day. “Make that year-round to protect your skin from sun damage,” she adds. Using sunscreen is the most important part of any grooming routine. Not only does wearing SPF decrease your risk of developing skin cancer, but it also helps prevent premature skin ageing. It doesn’t matter which sunscreen you use, just make sure you’re reapplying it every two hours, especially if you’re outdoors. Remember, if it’s not on your skin, it won’t protect you. Here are our suncare recommendations to keep your skin protected. 

And good news: You don’t have to run around a mall looking for these sunscreens! They’re all available online at Edgars.
